Over the school holidays, there were (ahem, quite a few) some days where the weather wasn’t so good, and I was recovering from a minor knee procedure. So we were housebound and we all know that kids can only last for so long when stuck indoors and bored.
So, when we were asked to try some Nutty Putty, I jumped at the idea. One because it’s a craft the children can do, with minimal help from Mum (see above!) and it looked like great fun, to keep them busy for a bit, and while away the time.
Nutty Putty™ is unlike any other type of Putty. It is educational as well being versatile and fun. To keep your creation, simply pop it in the oven for 10 minutes and it transforms into a permanent object which you play with forever – (or you can give it to your mum as a gift!).
Whats all the fuss about?
It’s glossy, rubbery, non-messy, non-drying, bouncy, shiny, mixable, non-flaking, waterproof (once baked) AND theres even a glow in the dark!
